Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated AdventuresFlora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Honestly, I read this book 30 days ago and I cannot remember what it was about. I read a lot of the reviews and I still can't remember much of it. Unfortunately, that says a lot about a book. I remember that it was a comic book type format and that a squirrel was vacuumed up and came out as something of a superhero. There's a pitiful little girl, Flora, who has lots of struggles and she becomes the squirrel's protector. The family is pretty dysfunctional and the squirrel helps to resolve some of them.

I gave it a third star because I remember thinking that it was pretty cute for a 10 year old, so on that basis, I added the star. I can't go any farther than that for a book that hasn't even stuck with me for a month, even for a book from a notable author.
